President Barack Obama spoke to Georgia Tech students Tuesday, calling for easier access to affordable education. Afterward, like so many thirsty Atlantans, he stopped by historic watering hole Manuel's Tavern in Poncey-Highland.
The president didn't eat or have an alcoholic beverage, according to CBS 46, but he did engage in a favorite pastime of regular bar patrons.

No word on whether Obama played cricket or some other variation of darts.
Manuel's has long been a destination for politicians, especially the Democratic variety. Before he made his way to the White House, Jimmy Carter announced his first gubernatorial campaign at the bar in 1970, per the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Bill Clinton and Al Gore made a stop at Manuel's during their 1992 presidential campaign.
Manuel's is set to become part of a mixed-use development project next year, but owner Brian Maloof says the bar "will be preserved and refurbished."
